what does it mean when the Windows Memory Diagnostic say Hardware problem? does it mean you have bad RAM modules? can windows have some kind of bug(causing BSODs) that needs debugging? i opened up my system this morning runnong into multiple BSODs of which said BAD_POOL_CALLER then windows reports error with Bccode: f4, used the Mem diag tool for w7, 1st test said "Hardware problem", i rebooted and allowed windows so fix Startup and one of the messages at the bottom said something about debugging something in the memory, then i took out and reseated both ram modules and i have not had any problem since this morning, i restarted multiple times and no problems, did Windows Memory DIagnostics 3 times and nNo problems were found, is there anything i should still worry about or do?

i know im just being a bit paranoid since my system is new, i think i may have installed something that screwed up windows or wasnt able to put the memory right, i just hope i fixed it for good
